Body Composition Assessment
Don't be a slave to the scale! Go beyond the guesswork with science, and body composition measuring tools
A body composition assessment employs tools that measure a variety of physical parameters: skin fold calipers to measure the thickness of the skin and underlying adipose (fat) tissue at a range of sites around the body; a measuring tape for girth measurements; a common bathroom scale for determining body weight; and a camera positioned in front of a background reference grid for taking actual snapshots from the front and side. Accrued together, the data obtained using these tools creates a snapshot in time of your current body composition.
